1. Morphological and functional effects of insulin signaling and the bHLH transcription factor Dimmed on different neuron types in Drosophila
Sammanfattning : In Drosophila, the insulin signaling pathway is at the interface between dietary conditions and control of growth and development, reproduction, stress responses and life span. Eight insulin like peptides (Dilp1-8), an insulin tyrosine kinase receptor (dInR) and its downstream components, as well as a relaxin-like receptor type (Lgr3) form the core of this signaling.

2. Regulation of insulin signaling and its developmental and functional roles on peptidergic neurons in the Drosophila central nervous system
Sammanfattning : In Drosophila, eight insulin-like peptides (DILP1-8) are produced and secreted in different locations. They regulate many aspects of development and physiology, such as organism growth, metabolic homeostasis, reproduction, stress resistance and life span. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : In Drosophila, neuropeptides have regulatory roles in development, growth, metabolism and reproduction. This study focused on GABA and the neuropeptides Drosophila tachykinin (DTK), short neuropeptide F (sNPF), adipokinetic hormone (AKH), corazonin (CRZ) and Drosophila insulin-like peptides (DILPs) as possible regulators of metabolic stress responses and homeostasis.

Sammanfattning : Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and short neuropeptide F (sNPF) are widespread signalling molecules in the brain of insects. In order to understand more about the signalling and to some extent start to unravel the functional roles of these two substances, this study has examined the locations of the transmitters and their receptors in the brain of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster using immunocytochemistry in combination with Gal4/UAS technique.

Sammanfattning : Oestrogens are produced by aromatisation of androgens by the aromatase enzyme. In the vertebrate brain this synthesis has vital functions in nerve protection, cell proliferation and nerve development during injury respectively brain development. LÄS MER
